I’ve always believed the improvement of our Society to be the result of a community process, where each of us has to engage personally and give a direct contribution.
For all these reasons, along my academic career, I’ve been on the front line of scientific organisations and institutions dealing with the development of life sciences in Europe.
I’ve been President of the Association of Italian Biotechnologists for six years, and I chaired the Young European Biotech Network for two years. I am now a member of the Executive Board of the European Federation of Biotechnology, where I chair the Task Group on Education, Mobility and Professional Qualifications.
Thanks to these networks, I had the opportunity to take part to the Forums of the European Commission on stem cells and GMOs, and later I’ve been called as a scientific expert to the Symposium Europa-Russia on biotechnology, and as part of the Advisory Committee on Skills for Bioeconomy, within the many initiatives for Europe 2020.
My network and expertise in international policies and strategy for biotechnology gives me a unique added value, should you be interested in my contribution to strategic advice and planning.
